Hi, I was just curious if anyone has ever worked with a nurse that is a Parapalegic?
I was told Parapalegics couldn't be nurses and I was wondering about it. If you can be able to do the work and complete your duties. I believe you should be allowed to work. Anyone else have any opinions on it?
:) When I was a nursing student I worked with a paraplegic nurse at a rehabilitation hospital. It was amazing what a great job she could do! Most of the patients at that hospital were paraplegic themselves. She had so much energy and was an inspiration to both staff and patients.

I had a friend who taught in nursing school who was a para.
Thank you for your replies :) it's good to know that people that have that type of disability aren't shut off from the world for wanting to do a career.
Is anyone on this site who has a disability and works as a nurse..I am currently soing a resarch project on nurses with disabilities and would love to hear from you!
